Though their isn't much to report on this week, the party did finally make it into the temple complex and were immediately beset by a pair of chuuls and a pair of desmodu mercs who were posted as sentries by their abberant masters, even though the party was invisible. Talking amongst yourselves, even though nobody can see you, is still kinda a give away for some reason.
Bellosh was the first to attack, and was dragged into the pool where the chuuls had made their homes, but was able to wriggle away after assuming amorphous form. That's when the action began. Lucky immediately fell into buffing others while Talin advanced to attack alongside Viday and Vacht loosed precisely aimed spells. Murmur, who was a bit further away from the fight, headed around to take care of one of the desmodus who had set himself up to snipe from a ledge.
Some of the group had become visibile after unleashing spells and attacks, making them easier targets for their assailants, and the chuuls and the 2nd desmodu (who had been invisible himself after hearing the ruckus) took advantage of that, the bat creature attacking Vacht as he cast a spell, though not ruining the attempt, and the one of the chuuls grabbing poor Talin and crushing her skull, killing her instantly. A few more well placed spells and attacks was all it took after that to finish the foes, and that's where we left off.
We've been starting super late, and we need to get out of that habit, because it limits what we can get done. Next week, I think I'm gonna crank the game up at 6 and see how that flies.
